Excellent first bloom. It’s my favourite cattleya species. The best examples are exquisite. The coeruleas are particularly good as there were four superb wild clones found and they have since been bred together. The rubras are also amazing.
check out Armando Mantinelli’s website at orquiverde.com for some stunners!

It's quickly becoming a favorite and I have a few more seedling up and coming from this species. I only wish the flower count was more than 1 or 2, as DrLeslieEe pointed out in another post. I have to check out his website, thanks for including it.

William, you are lucky living in the US, there are several vendors of lueddemanniana around. You can even buy the Arthur Chadwick clone from the source and choose between a mericlone or a division, depending on the depth of your pocket. Good luck,
David

Yes I sent them a pod of C. rex last summer and there are several flasks of that still up for reservation requests if you are interested!

I am very excited about the Blossfeldianas, let me tell you. Strong growers and so uncommon! Can't wait to get these blooming and make some sib crosses, if possible.

Really? 10? That just seems so...excessive...
Earliest rex blooms is 5 years. By 10 years, all will be blooming by then. That's the nature of big unifoliate species that is particularly hard to grow like rex.
